hhhmm bu romanı ıslak gözler olmadan okumazsın ...
I did complete the mammoth of a book. I also was pumped up to read it after the excellent "The Terror".Like "The Terror", Drood is a blend of fact/fiction that is popular these days. The story opens to the Steeplechase disaster which Dickens narrowly survives. It's at Steeplechase where he meets the mysterious scarecrow thin Drood. Clad in dark clothes, Drood tries to comfort the victims only to find they have quickly passed on. Dickens is intrigue with this character and with the help of his protege Wilkie Collins they sought to discover more of Drood. Prior to Charles Dickens death 5 years after the Steeplechase accident, he dies without fnishing his last novel, The Mystery Of Edwin Drood. Wilkie Collins is famous in his own right, writing the classic Lady In White & Moonstone-he is the narrator of Drood and is a fascinating character. Due to physical ailments he is addicted to laudanum (liquid opium), therefore doubting his recollection and visions.What is the truth in this story? There is not doubt that Simmons is an excellent writer-at times the story drags a bit-but it goes back on track. Personally, I loved it.It made be want to read Wilkie Collins books and to read more of Dickens.I hope this review was helpful!
This might be the best novel of the 20th century.
